Frailty Characteristics Predict Respiratory Failure in Patients Undergoing Tracheobronchoplasty
Patients undergoing tracheobronchoplasty for diffuse tracheobronchial malacia were retrospectively stratified as severely frail or other based on a cumulative deficits model score. Severe frailty was associated with an increased risk of respiratory failure (OR 13.1), pneumonia (OR 20.1), and overall respiratory complications (OR 17.4).
